Medical Cannabis Laws in OK

2018

Medical Marijuana Legalization Initiative Question 788

Under SQ 788, an individual who obtains a Medical Marijuana License from the state of Oklahoma may consume marijuana legally and may legally possess up to:

  • 3 ounces (85 g) of marijuana
  • Six mature marijuana plants (defined as plants that are in the budding stage)
  • Six plants (defined as plants that are in the vegetative stage and are not yet budding)
  • 1 ounce (28 g) of concentrated marijuana
  • 72 ounces (2,000 g) of edible marijuana
  • 8 ounces (230 g) of marijuana in their residence

Initially, smokable cannabis flower was not available, but this part of the legislation was repealed.

“State Question 788 legalized marijuana, also known as cannabis, for medical purposes in Oklahoma. The measure required a state-issued medical marijuana license to have a board-certified physician’s signature. The action required no specific qualifying conditions to receive medical marijuana.

The measure allowed people with licenses to possess up to 3 ounces of marijuana on their person and 8 ounces of marijuana in their residence. A 7 percent tax was levied on marijuana sales, with revenue allocated to administrative costs, education, and drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

The measure required licenses to operate dispensaries, commercial growing operations, and processing operations. The action prohibited municipalities from restricting zoning laws to prevent marijuana dispensaries.”

Recreational, Adult-Use Cannabis Laws in OK

What medical conditions qualify for a Medical Marijuana Card in Oklahoma?

There are no specific qualifying conditions for medical marijuana in Oklahoma. Physicians can recommend medicinal cannabis for anyone they feel merits medical marijuana qualification and will treat cannabis recommendations with the same regard they ought to take with other prescription medications. Any severe condition that involves chronic pain, nausea/vomiting, muscle spasms, seizures, headaches/migraines, and/or chronic anxiety, depression, and insomnia may qualify you for a medical cannabis certification in Oklahoma. Those seeking to replace opioids or sedatives with medical cannabis may also be eligible for the program.

Does Oklahoma accept out-of-state cards?

Oklahoma has medical marijuana reciprocity and recognizes medical marijuana cards from out-of-state. So, suppose you have a valid MMJ card from Arizona, California, or any other state with a functioning medical marijuana or cannabis I.D. program. In that case, it is recognized as valid in Oklahoma! However, it is wise to call ahead to see if you can purchase at a dispensary.


Will my Oklahoma card be accepted in other states?

An Oklahoma medical marijuana card is valid in other states with reciprocity.

The following states accept or recognize out-of-state medical marijuana cards:

  • Arizona
  • Maine
  • Massachusetts
  • Michigan
  • Montana
  • Nevada
  • New Hampshire
  • New Jersey
  • New Mexico
  • Puerto Rico
  • Rhode Island
  • U.S. Virgin Islands
  • Utah
  • Washington, D.C.

However, this does not always mean you can purchase cannabis at a medical marijuana dispensary (non-medical adult use is acceptable) — just that the state’s medical marijuana laws protect you to some extent. It is wise to call the dispensary ahead if you are a medical cannabis patient from another state and intend to purchase medical marijuana.

The qualifying condition usually has to match between states, so if your qualifying condition is accepted in one state and not your visiting state, your recommendation is not necessarily valid. You are also accountable to the visiting state’s medical marijuana laws, not the state that issued your card.

The following states accept out-of-state applications, allowing visiting patients to use medical cannabis for the duration of their stay:

  • Arkansas
  • California
  • Hawaii
  • West Virginia (cancer patients only)

Are there employment laws protecting medical cannabis cardholders in Oklahoma?

Employers still have the right to test Oklahoma employees for marijuana, regardless of cardholder status. Nothing in the state medical marijuana law limits an employer’s right to test for marijuana and/or its metabolites.


What are the medical cannabis product testing requirements in Oklahoma?

Cannabis in Oklahoma must be tested for cannabinoid content, mold, metals, pesticides, or other contaminants. Third-party labs test cannabis products.


Where is it safe to purchase cannabis in Oklahoma?

In all states with a medical marijuana program, the only way to purchase medicinal cannabis products is via a legally-licensed dispensary or pharmacy or another legally designated space to buy cannabis. Only those with a legal license to sell cannabis can do so.


Where is it safe to consume marijuana in Oklahoma?

All states with a medical marijuana program have some restrictions on where a person can legally use cannabis. Near schools, nurseries, parks, or other places where children are expected to be, using cannabis is illegal. Use of cannabis on or in federal land or buildings, hospitals, or other such healthcare space is also illegal. Private members’ clubs and landowners may also prohibit cannabis use on their property or restrict it at their discretion.

The safest place to use medical cannabis is in the safety of your own home. It is wise to use common sense, keep consumption out of public view, and utilize discreet consumption methods wherever possible.
